|833-45 - Distance [nt012] - K M Krebs|
Distance is the debut EP from K M Krebs, now a prominent figure of the netlabel scene. This stunning debut establishes the shortwave texture aesthetic that would be the defining mark of 833-45 in his following albums, but is also host to some seriously dirty, broken rhythms.

On his third release, Eryk Salvaggio presents four delirious tracks made while suffering influenza (hence the name, as you have guessed.) A swooshy ride of eminently ill sampledelica, to be listened to whether in your sane mind or not.

This new work by Jos Smolders is part of his "beeld-kleur" (image-color) series, specifically aimed at "pictorial music" or repesentative music, as opposed to his usually non-figurative compositions. Hemel is dutch for "sky" but also for "heaven." Says Jos: "I sometimes think of Kevin's music as heavenly. Also, his earlier radio stuff reminded me of the aether, up up up in the sky..." * For full artwork and information please visit the official album page on notype.com.

|Various Artists - Dhomontelements [nt082]|
Francis Dhomont's influence spans beyond the scope of his musical practice. The human richness of his art, his serious and pragmatical approach to theory, his honest and tactful union of philosophy and music, the fierce life animating his compositions are all essential elements of his inspiring work. On December 15th, 2001, fifteen Canadian and American musicians unveiled fourteen eclectical remixes of Dhomont's landmark compositions...

Here at No Type, we like ambiences most when they have personality. And personality is something Felix, the man behind Repetition/Distract, certainly doesn’t lack. Inbetween impressions of quiet architectures, massive landscapes & drony seas, there are percussive hints at a human presence. This music is in dark grey hues but it’s also warm & enveloping. And with enough twists & turns to keep you on the edge...

James Schidlowsky collected all the sounds and noises of this sonic journey in the Montreal subway system. Since Providence is the name given previously to the monitoring and security hub of the undergound transportation system, this sound ecology project can be interpreted as an reflexion on its structure, or even a quest for its true meaning - a search for its symbolic 'heart'. The fundamental essence of this quest is explained in great details here...

Eucci has never stopped making music since his beginnings as part of mythical noise ensemble The Audio ELW. This Salt Lake City based composer (real name Jeffrey P Shell) has made two albums for No Type, plus a soundtrack for Sine Fiction, but mostly he produced many other projects in relative obscurity, mostly for his own homegrown label, Rive.

Eight years after the mythical Noel Breakdance 1998 by Surfing Secrets, No Type finally (?) presents a new Christmas album!

So go get your spray cans of artificial snow and your bags of aluminium icycles, life is too short!

This is James Schidlowsky's No Type debut, following an array of self-released CDRs. Schidlowsky uses the guitar in a throughly textural, hypnotically minimal fashion, as he is concerned foremost with a particularly abstract sort of meditative ambience. The 5 tracks of this EP present alternate versions or "remixes" of his CDR-released material.

At any rate, it ended up being a sleeper hit, with 7000 downloads in less than a year. With this follow-up, well, let's just say there's everything we like about this project: lush ambiences with a subtle underside of grit, dreamy melodies that veer far away from too-sweet.....

A world of contrast is what awaits those who will heed the sound of Brussels based duo Tangtype, the happy meeting of Julie Cambier's fragile yet expressive voice with Jean-François Brohee’s savant electronic tweakings. On the menu: all manners of weaving, colliding, mingling and shredding. A debut mini-album that's at once fragmented and warm, and most of all full of charm. And another addition to this decreasingly marginal genre which we’ll call "acousmatic pop"...
